Last Thursday I got my first dog, a Pyrenean Shepherd.  She is wonderful, cute, and totally smart.  Here is a picture, and a video of tricks she has learned in the last week.

Over the past couple months (in anticipation of getting a dog) I have comprised a list of dog breeds that I like.  If anyone could give me advice, concerns, etc. about certain breeds that would be wonderful.

I have always liked shaggy dogs (bearded collies, Tibetan terriers, etc) but recently my attention has been stolen by a breed that I have never seen before… Pyrenean Shepherds.  They come in two varieties: smooth-faced and rough-faced, and lots of colors.

Other breeds that interest me are:

  • Bichon
  • Border Terrier
  • Vizsla
  • Puli
  • Pointer
  • Schiperkee
  • Airedale
  • Beagle
  • West Highland White Terrier
  • Cairn Terrier
  • Norfolk Terrier
  • German Shorthaired Pointer (if they are pretty dark)
